Rodrigo de Sá I'm surprised to be the first one to add this album to my collection. It's a remarkable work influenced by different music eras. From Beach Boys to Arctic Monkeys. Favorite track: Chance to Decide.

about

Rock Eupora’s debut album “Blanks” was created by Clayton Waller in December of his senior year of college, all in one room of his house in small town Mississippi. The album features energetic riffs, dynamic composition, and rich production. Through unique melodies and song structures, Waller takes a very honest approach to themes of doubt, faith, hope, and love.

Track Name: Home
I don’t think you (think you understand)

What I’m feeling (what I’m feeling)

So I guess I’ll close my eyes

You sure took me by surprise



It’s not too late



What makes you think you can (makes you think you can)

Give your opinion (your opinion)

Eyes fixed upon the ground

Don’t dare to make a sound



It’s not too late

You’re not too far gone



I’ll be here when you’re down

Stand up get off the ground

You think you’re too far gone

Why don’t you just come home



Why do we struggle?

Is there a reason?

Why do I feel alone?

I can’t do this

Do this on my own

Please throw a dog a bone



I’ll be here when you’re down

Stand up get off the ground

You think you’re too far gone

Why don’t you just come home



It’s not too late

You’re not too far gone

It’s not too late

You’re not too far gone



I’ll be here when you’re down

Stand up get off the ground

You think you’re too far gone

Why don’t you just come home
Track Name: Running On Clouds (Wrong God)
Always turning to the wrong things and time

Always turning to the wrong things and

Time will tell, time will tell



Always worried about me and myself

Always worried about me

And no one else, no one else



Too much stress put on me by me

Too much stress put on me by me

For nothing, ­for no thing



Too much weight on me I’m running thin

Only option left is to start again

Can I start again?



It’s the right mind for the wrong god

Yeah



I think I’m lying, I think I might be lying

Starting to think I’m not so sure anymore

This selfishness is getting hard to ignore



I think we’re slowly dying

We might be slowly dying

It’s okay cause life is bigger than this

I found peace instead of emptiness



I'm running I'm running I'm running I'm running on clouds

I wanna I wanna I wanna I wanna be proud

I want it I want it I want it I want it



It’s the right mind for the wrong god

Yeah
Track Name: Haunt
Am I okay?

Build my life ‘til it’s enough to say

I’m okay

Not because of me but someone paid



Have you looked at the things you’ve done?

Have you wondered if it’s enough?

Does it haunt you to look at the rough?

Has it come from above?



Do you think?

That you have helped another find their way

I don’t know

If there’s a colder world when you're alone



Have you looked at the things you’ve done?

Have you wondered if it’s enough?

Does it haunt you to look at the rough?

Has it come from above?



You will see I have nothing to gain from me

And I have nothing to lose from you

I choose to die of this world and release

The chains of slavery



Have you looked at the things you’ve done?

Have you wondered if it’s enough?

Does it haunt you to look at the rough?

Has it come from above?
Track Name: Chance to Decide
I was thrown in a moat and there's no way out, I’ll end up drowning down

Do we have a choice no strings attached or are we puppets now



I need you more than I need my life

I’m a desperate guy I’m a desperate guy

The flames are hot they never die

Don't let me fry don't let me fry



I know, we will never know, we will never know

It’s hard to know, will we ever know? will we ever know?



If we have no chance to decide

Then what’s the point?



Do we have control or does fate allow ‘cause I can’t handle that

Do we have a say? Is it just a game? There’s only one way out



I need you more than I need my life

I’m a desperate guy I’m a desperate guy

The flames are hot they never die

Don't let me fry don't let me fry



I know, we will never know, we will never know

It’s hard to know. Will we ever know? Will we ever know?



If heaven’s real does everyone have a shot to make it?

‘Cause sometimes it feel like me and my friends shoot blanks and fake it



I know, we will never know, we will never know

It’s hard to know, will we ever know? will we ever know?
Track Name: Nothing At All
What do you see?

You just got to believe

That there’s nothing at all—nothing at all, nothing at all

But I think you see

Right through me

Broken and all—broken and all broken and all



Day will come when you’ll see it

See my faults

But its okay I’m not living

Living for y'all

Evil schemes are brewing

Behind it all

At least in the end we can face it

Everyone falls



So don’t pretend

Like you’re a hundred percent

No one comes close—no one comes close, no one comes close

So what do we do?

About me and you

Forgive and move on—forgive and move on, forgive and move on



Day will come when you’ll see it

See my faults

But its okay I’m not living

Living for y'all

Evil schemes are brewing

Behind it all

At least in the end we can face it

Everyone falls



And we got to admit

We’re not cut out for this

And there’s nothing to do

But love the brokenness around you



What do you see?

You just got to believe

That there’s nothing at all—nothing at all, nothing at all



Day will come when you’ll see it

See my faults

But its okay I’m not living

Living for y'all

Evil schemes are brewing

Behind it all

At least in the end we can face it

Everyone falls
Track Name: Rollercoaster
There’s a rollercoaster in my head

Got me laying restless in my bed

And I’m such a mess

But I put on my best

And play it cool

Like I’m better than you

I’m not

I’m not



Pressure building up its getting hot

Am I gonna make it? Probably not

And you know I see

Everything I could be

I know it’s true

There’s just nothing to do

But wait

But wait



And you don’t have a place you can hide

Unseen eyes

There’s no grave you can bury your lies

Lies



We are all so messed up broken bad

It’s a wonder when we’re taken back

No more worry or pain

All us beggars acclaimed

Hard to face the truth

That there's nothing to do

But thank



And you don’t have a place you can hide

Unseen eyes

There’s no grave you can bury your lies

And you don’t have a place you can hide

Unseen eyes

There’s no grave you can bury your lies

Lies

Lies

Lies

Lies



You can try to control

Plan it all til your old

But you won’t always right

Give it up stop the fight



And you found there’s a place to abide

No disguise

Crawl up out of the muck and arise

Rise



There’s a rollercoaster in my head

No need to worry now your dead
Track Name: Fake and Fleeting
I can't explain what

Or why it’s happening

Fall for it every time

It’s bringing me down



I've got a reason

Why I believe that

You’re fake and fleeting



You gave me this

Why me honestly

Now I realize

It’s for you and not me



I’ve got a reason

Why I believe that

You're fake and



Don't know why you chose me

To carry this burden

Hope I have the courage

Stand for something important



I’ve got a reason

Why I believe that

You're fake and fleeting
Track Name: Plan
All these years have turned to dust

For just one bit can I be blunt?

It feels like time has come to hunt

I find it hard to truly trust



When I wake up everyday

I find out what I’m gonna say

Time is flying by so fast

How much longer will this last?

Please cut to the chase



Try what I love, or do what I can

Is it bad that I’ve no plan?

I’d rather barely make it by

Then start my day off with a sigh



When I wake up everyday

I find out what I’m gonna say

Time is flying by so fast

How much longer will this last?

Please cut to the chase



Wish I’d known about this sooner

But that’s the way that its gotta be

And when I think about the future

Everything is gonna be okay

Even when the sky’s a little gray

Everything is gonna be oh



When I wake up everyday

I find out what I’m gonna say

Time is flying by so fast

How much longer will this last?

Please cut to the chase



It doesn’t have to be this way

All the choices that I’ve made

Coming up will be tough

But I trust it’s enough

To save from monotony



Everything is gonna be okay

Even if the skies a little gray



And I know it’ll be slow

But at least I will know

I’m at peace and I’m happy
Track Name: Focus
Wake up, start my day, out the door, can’t be late

Need to focus on you, but not today

Getting caught in the comfort of the daily grind

Something’s got to change and that’s no lie



Keep finding other things to spend my time with

When really any time outside of you is time-less

Please help me to focus



You know my heart but there’s some kind of disconnect

And yes I know there’s not a soul in this world that’s perfect

Desperation got me shakin’ ‘cause I’m scared I’ve gotta make it

Easy to forget that there’s no penalty or payment



Keep finding other things to spend my time with

When really any time outside of you is time-less

Please help me to focus



Keep trying to live my life

Like I’m the one that has to satisfy

You’re the one that carries all the weight



Keep trying to live my life

Like I’m the one that has to satisfy

You’re the one that catches all the blame
Track Name: Side By Side
At the start, it was easy to look past

The way that you drew, me closer to your eyes

I had no one, one

I had nobody to stand closely by my side



In the morning I don’t wanna wake up all alone

And when I come home I don't wanna feel the empty cold

I just want you by my side



I need a girl who is willing to step past

To go for a dream that is foolish in most eyes

I found someone, one

I found someone to love me for the good and bad



In the morning I don’t wanna wake up all alone

No I don’t wanna wake up all alone

And when I come home I don't wanna feel the empty cold

No I don't wanna feel the empty cold

I just want you by my side



I need somebody when it’s bad

It’s hard to stand among the crowd

I need you

And a pretty girl like you don't



Wanna wake up all alone

No you don’t wanna wake up all alone

When you come home you don't wanna feel the empty cold

No you don’t wanna feel the empty cold

We need each other side by side
